TypeStatus Plus

  • TypeStatus Plus. The extension to the legendary tweak TypeStatus.

    TypeStatus Plus can help you see who is currently typing a message to you, no matter what app you use. Whether this is WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Telegram, or even the default iOS Messages app, TypeStatus Plus supports all of these and more.

    But, it does not end there. TypeStatus Plus has an API allowing developers to make "providers" to support any given app. With this addition, it is unlikely there will be an app TypeStatus Plus doesn't support.

    With TypeStatus Plus, you will never be left without typing notifications. TypeStatus Plus supports the Apple Watch and Bluetooth Low Energy devices, such as the Pebble smartwatch. TypeStatus Plus deeply integrates with the Apple Watch, leaving you with a sleek interface to enjoy.

    In your Messages app, you can always see who is typing. When you're in the conversation list, a typing indicator will conveniently be added to the given conversation. When you're talking to multiple people at once, this will really come in handy.

    If someone is typing for a while, and you don't really know what's going on, you can always click the typing indicator in your status bar to open up the messages app to your conversation. There has never been a way to access the messaging from the typing indicator with such ease.

    In addition, you can keep track of your unread messages. From the TypeStatus Plus settings, you can configure any app and the badge count for said app will be in your status bar at all times. If you don't have any unread messages, TypeStatus Plus will remove it from your status bar, leaving it clutter free.

    You also will get notifications for when someone starts typing, so that when you're away from your phone, all of your TypeStatus Plus notifications will still be there. Now, you can always see when someone is composing a message to you.

    We've put in a ton of work in to TypeStatus Plus. We hope you enjoy it.

  • Make your on-the-go listening work better for you with Canzone. Canzone displays a banner notification when the currently playing song changes. If you like knowing exactly what you’re listening to without having to constantly check Control Center, this tweak is for you!


    Swipe down or 3D Touch on the notification to reveal more details and playback controls. Don’t like the current song? Just 3D Touch and tap the skip button.

    Expanded notification

    Notifications also appear on Apple Watch and other smartwatches. If you like a minimalist lock screen, or want a more subtle way to show now playing details alongside your LockHTML or Cydget lock screen layout, you can replace the lock screen’s now playing interface with Canzone notifications.

    Lock screen controls

    Canzone also provides a Notification Center Today widget containing the now playing song details and playback controls.

    Today widget

  • Reminder: This is a beta release! If you’re not willing to put up with bugs and possibly crashes, wait for the final release of this tweak.

Note that this is accessible from the lock screen by default. If this is undesirable, configure Activator to not activate from the lock screen.

  • Almost all address and map links you come across will open the iOS Maps app when tapped. Unfortunately, Apple Maps had proven to be unreliable in its first months, and even today there are areas of the world that aren’t as accurate as in Google Maps. MapsOpener exists to allow you to override this behavior and use Google Maps for all map links. This includes links to the Google Maps website, which usually open in Safari and require an extra tap to open the native app.

    The latest version of the Google Maps app from the App Store is required.

  • Chrysalis was designed from a vision of a better 3D Touch app switcher, and to bring a convenient app switching gesture to older devices. There has never been an easier way to switch your apps efficiently before Chrysalis. Simply force press on the left edge of the screen, or swipe from the left edge of the screen on older devices, and Chrysalis will create an elegant new experience for you. Drag your finger to the app you would like to switch to and let go. That’s it!

    Built from the ground up with lots of love, to not just be an immersive experience, but it was also built for a good cause. We made this tweak as part of the Tweak Battles competition, where almost $1,000 was raised for charity.

    Thank you so much to @twodayslate for putting together and coordinating the Tweak Battles competition. Also, a big thanks to our wonderful designer Veerklempt for being creative and supporting us along the way. Most of all, a huge thanks to the supporters of Tweak Battles. You are all mentioned in our settings.

    We hope you enjoy the convenience of Chrysalis, as much as we did making it.

    Ben Rosen, Carlos Perez (CPDigitalDarkroom), Adam Demasi (kirb), Anh Nguyen (veerklempt)
